RALEIGH, Jan. 2—(U.R)—State
prison officials today were inves
tigating an attempted break at
Central prison here late last night
when six long term prisoners suc
cessfully got on top of the prison
after cutting bars to their cells.
Warden. Hugh Wilson said that
two of the men cut the bars to
their cells and with the aid of
“home made” keys let out four
other men from their cells. They
also used keys to gain admittance
to the roof of the prison where they
were discovered by guards an(|
returned to their cells.
The men were listed as:
Archie Stephens, 28, convicted of
first degree murder in Durham.
His sentence was commuted to
life, May 29, 1940.
Roy Kelly, 33, convicted of first
degree murder in Alamance coun
ty, and sentenced to life March 7,
J. H. Massy, 30, sentenced to life I
in Robeson county for breaking
entering, assault with intent to
Hallie Lee Kelly, 30, convicted
in Davidson, Moore, Jackson, and
Haywood counties of larceny, rob
bery and damage to state property
and sentenced to a total of 29
Jack Motley, 26, convicted in

RALEIGH, Jan. 2. — (IP) — The
question of the authority of the
State Board of Agriculture to reg
ulate the content of fertilizers sold
in North Carolina was taken under
advisement tonight by a special
committee of the board after a
hearing in which the authority was
challenged by Ralph Douglas, pres
ident of a Norfolk, Va., fertilizer
The committee, which is expect
ed to make its recommendation
tomorrow at a meeting here of the
full board, is composed of W. B.
Austin of Jefferson, J. H. Poole
of West End, Claude T. Hall of
Woodsdale and D. R. Noland of
They attended today’s confer
ence with fertilizer manufactur
ers, farmers and agronomists dur
ing which Douglas defended his
company against charges of manu
facturing 35,000 tons of tobacco
fertilizer containing 3.5 per cent of
chlorine in alleged violation of a
Board of Agriculture and N, C.
Agriculture Experiment Station
rule which permits a maximum of
three per cent chlorine.
The conference was called by
D. S. Coltrane, assistant N. C.
Agriculture Commissioner, who
said the Smith-Douglas company
of Norfolk had manufactured the
fertilizer without consulting the
State Department of Agriculture
of the Experiment station. He
said experiments indicated a small
quantity of chlorine to be helpful
but a large amount to be injurious
to tobacco, reducing its burning
qualities and producing a thick,
heavy, soggy leaf which did not
lend itself to proper curing.
He asserted that, since the ex
periments proved 3:5 per cent of
chlorine would lower the quality
of the leaf, correction of the 35,000
tons of fertilizer manufactured by
Smith-Douglas lies within the
province of the Board of Agricul
Douglas promised that no addi
tional quantities of fertilizer of
this type would be manufactured
this season if his company could
secure permission to sell what it
now had on hand.
This brought diverging views
from those attending the confer
ence. A. C. Edwards of Hooker
ton, representing the farm group,
opposed permission to sell, while
Sen. W. G. Clark of Tarboro ex
pressed the view that it should be
permitted in view of a shortage of
sulphate of potash and the antici
pated shortage of tobacco ferti
lizers in general.
